JOYCE REDFERN retires on her millions you paid for

T was all change at Wigan Council as its chief executive stepped down.

Joyce Redfearn was showered with gifts as her final day with the local authority and PCT ended with an emotional farewell party at the new Life Centre.

Ms Redfearn, who is taking early retirement, specifically chose the venue because she is so proud to have been involved in such a development whose long-time planning and construction have coincided with much of her tenure.

Among those at the presentation were senior councillors, former authority chiefs, an ex-mayor and sporting bigwigs Dave Whelan and Ian Lenagan.

Ms Redfearn was gifted flowers, glasses and a unique mocked-up front page of the Wigan Evening Post from the council’s media team listing some of her career highlights.

The ceremony came just days after Ms Redfearn’s former deputy, Donna Hall, was confirmed as her replacement at a meeting of the full council.
